First off "Break" is as if it's broken and "Brake" stops the vehicle.

If your trying to hook up an air brake line for the vehicle you're towing, (goes to an air piston mounted to the floor of the car and to the brake pedal)
I can help. You'll need to get a "T" fitting and remove an air line to one of your rear brakes then run the new line from the "T" to the back of your coach. If it's something else then maybe a bit more explanation is in order.

Need more info. Just what are you trying to do?

I just installed the AF1 in my coach and car. If that is what you are doing I can help.

Just a reminder, your coach has anti-lock brakes. If you tap into the air brake line at a brake cylinder your after the anti-skid control valve. If, you apply enough brake to actuate the anti-skid to that wheel, your also pulsing the toad brake at the same time.

Probably doesn't make a lot of difference in most cases, but, I just thought I'd bring it up as I'm in the middle of installing the Roadmaster 9160 brake unit at this time. I have to get the proper "T" fitting to install at the master air brake control valve and run the air line to the back.

Thanks, Mike
Without knowing more we could be helping you into real trouble. There are several "green" air lines of different sizes. If you don't know which one to tap don't do it. SMI Air Force One is clear in their instructions as to which one to tap to feed air back to their add on tank and relay assembly. They also caution about cutting the wrong line. Are you just looking for a air supply? Don't forget the chuck under the hood. I added a gauge to mine for reference.

What ever you do, PLEASE be careful.
